Summary

In this 10th anniversary edition of We Are Our Mothers' Daughters, renowned political commentator Cokie Roberts once again examines the nature of women's roles through the illuminating lens of her personal experience. From mother to mechanic, sister to soldier, Roberts reveals how much progress has now been made and how much further we have to go.

Updated and expanded to include a diverse new cast of women, including Hillary Clinton, Laura Bush, Billie Jean King, and others, this collection of essays offers tremendous insight into the opportunities and challenges that women encounter today.

Looking into the future, Roberts focuses on the question of "What next?" exploring how several women have begun to define themselves in the next stages of their life.

Excellent

This is an excellent mix of personal autobiography and very interesting research on contribution of women to our modern society. Professional life, especially at the top in academia, and even more in business is still very much dominated by men. This book reminds us of the struggles and achievements of women who have gone before us. As an audiobook, it is well read and very easy to listen to.

A must read or “listen” for all women and girls!!

Lindy Boggs, Cokies’s mother spoke at my Newcomb College graduation back in 1991. Her words were inspiring and heartfelt- especially the advice regarding family and work balance. Many years later, I have made a point to read everything I could from the women of this special family. After Cokie’s passing, I decided to co-listen to this book with my ten and twelve year old daughters and it has given us hours of fascinating discussion and words of wisdom. God bless you Cokie, you are such a blessing for our country.
